17 July 2016

Have you ever been on a walk and felt like you were in some sort of Nintendo Game whereas you have to pass obstacles to get to the next level?

Today's walk was one of these and there was only one player 'me'…..

Starting lives 3.

I headed down past Mount Field National Park to Tyenna, destination Marriot Falls and what a magnificent site it was, another favourite to add to the list.

LEVEL ONE:

Fog and lots of it created an eerie prettiness. The first 20 minutes of the track you walk alongside the roaring Tyenna River.

LEVEL TWO:

Hurdling and Limboing over and under fallen trees across the path.

 

LEVEL THREE:

This was the hardest level. Not being a lover of spiders I found walking through an unusual mass of cob webs quite daunting, my hiking stick came in handy to clear the way.

LEVEL FOUR:

Mud. Some parts of the track are quite boggy and slippery. I lost two lives on this level.

LEVEL FIVE:

Slippery logs and rocks around the falls.

LEVEL SIX:

Marriot Falls and my goodness what a reward it was!! I was not expecting such a magnificent waterfall as I hadn't heard a lot about it, Tasmania's little secret I think.

I spent about half an hour here admiring the majestic thunderous falls in all its glory.
